    Pictures show both as the same engine, but different sellers. My alarm bells are ringing.

    No ancillaries which may pose a problem if you need a thermostat housing.

    The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

    Loads of Marlin Reference can be found documents here or there.

      Different accounts but I think they are both the same seller. They are both in the same location and both adverts say there are two to be sold.

        Ben Caswell probably not the last word on anything here!!
